RSS feeds?
« on: March 10, 2008, 02:04:14 PM »
Ok, my last question for today ;)

RSS feeds are a great way to stay on top of posts to a forum. I notice we have one for the front page for all new posts; is it possible to have separate feeds for each discussion group? (Meditation Hall, Resources & Library, etc.)

Dear Caveman,
Really Simple Syndication, basically lets you subscribe to a feed and through a reader, get notification of updated content.  The link explains very well.
I'm sure our web guru Matthew will respond to this one and whether this forum software can support it.

Grunt, uggh    :)

Dear Dave,

Yes this can be done. I need to do a little bit of investigating and tweaking which I will do as and when I can. At the moment I am rather tied in knots with some "real life" administrative rubbish, however, I promise I will try and find a little time to do this as soon as I can.

SAMSARA SUCKS,

Matthew

Done. It's per board at the moment, not per topic, and I have to work out why the icon isn't working :@ . Will look into that.

No, sorry, in getting these ones to work I over-wrote the old ones. The old ones annoyed me ... not greatly yet they didn't really have enough "emotional differentiation" between them .... these new ones are much easier to differentiate.

In my opinion some of the old ones were better than the new ones. I'm missing especially the grinning one (showing his teeth) and the laughing one. I liked them a lot for their expression.  ;D This one is nice, too, but expresses something different than the grinner.  :D This one is too paranoid for me,  it makes me twitch neurotically.
So ... the old ones are gone forever?  :'(    ( :-[ what about this one?)

Metta  :-*

I agree with Stefan, I prefer the old ones. the new ones are too animated and overpower the text.

What about the old ones? Isn't it possible to have the old AND the new ones? There are so many human emotions, 16 smilies don't seem sufficient ...

The old and new ones are based on the same codes being entered into the text so thats a no-no without vast effort to recode the forum .... which can't be a priority.

Start a poll if you like ... old vs New :)
